Plains coreopsis, also called garden or golden tickseed (Coreopsis tinctoria) is a dwarf, sturdy annual plant that is easy in cultivation. This variety offered here stands out from other coreopsis cultivars with its small size. It grows only 12 - 16 cm tall. Its erect, widely branched stems that are covered with leaves support relatively large, flat blooms that consist of broad, golden-yellow petals. Their edges are distinctly denticulated, while the centres of the flower heads take on vividly orange colour. This plant blooms exuberantly from June to August. Since it grows low and takes on a nice, compact habit, it is perfectly suited for edgings and flower beds. You may also create a sunny composition on a border - the "Złoty Karzeł (Golden Dwarf)" plains coreopsis will attractively fill empty spaces left by the perennials whose flowers wilt late in spring.
Seeds of the variety that is offered in our store should be sown in spring to boxes at home or directly to the ground. The optimal germination temperature would be 18°C. The permanent site where tickseeds would grow needs to be light and sunny and the soil medium compact and rich in humus. These undemanding plants will also thrive in lesser soils, provided you enrich the ground with organic or mineral fertiliser. Packages available in our store contain 1 g of seeds. Quantity of seeds per 1 g: 3500 - 3800.
